Tesla hasnt released a name for the upcoming hatchback but some media outlets have started calling it
the Model 2 because it will be cheaper and smaller than
Teslas current entry-level car the Model 3. The car probably is. Called
the Model 2 but Elon Musk may own it. This particular request was previously deleted (opens in a new tab).
It wouldnt make much sense if Tesla continued to use
the naming schemes of its previous cars. After all Elon Musk
deliberately gave their names a Y with an S because the letters make
a catchy word. Or it would be
Tesla if Ford didnt carry the Model E name and thus Tesla was
forced to use the number 3 in Elon Musks place.
